This is the most anticipated part of our tour in Indonesia. Must visit both sites and enjoy the culture of Indonesia's renowned Buddhist & Hindu Temples. We are still in awe of Borobodur. No wonder it's awarded as one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Prepare your hat, umbrella and water. It'll be a long and sweaty walk.

Netflix reality show brought me here. The rumoured smelly helmet might somewhat true, though u can cover your hair with hotel's shower cap. The trip from jogja to the cave might take some time, once u arrive - they will put you into a pulley to bring you down to the cave. As back then i came during the rainy season, the cave was really muddy. There was some pitch dark moment, so makd sure to bring your flashlight (or phone will do, thus it can get dirty as well).
